Some hand quilting

Since it is summer I have been spending less time hand quilting and more time gardening. It really is great to be able to spend some time in the garden but it does mean I get less quilting done.

I have made some progress on this one


It is hard to see in the picture but the 3 blocks in the center are done.

here it is in the hoop.


and under Teddy


And here are more garden pictures.

Happy Quilting

    Ah yes…but the rewards are great! Fresh air; sunshine; exercise; peace and solitude in a silent garden listening to it grow! Sacred time! However, it is sometimes difficult to leave our quilts even for a little while!

    More than anything, I would love to see his harden.

    Forgive that misspelling. I meant garden. My one complaint with the iPad is that the keys are so close together that I am always hitting the one next to the one I want, if I go too fast.

    The garden is beautiful – peaceful yet so vibrant and full of color inspiration. Teddy looks as happy posed on the grass as he does on a quilt. I can’t blame him!

    Spring and early summer is the best time of the year!! I have a question: the white with yellow paeonia is it Paeonia lactiflora Jan van Leeuwen?

    Great handquilting and garden. Love looking at a lush garden–your quilting friend from drought stricken California.

    I’ve been doing a lot of alterations so, I’ve not done any quilting in nearly 3 weeks. I had some beautiful Indian suits given to me and the tops needed a bit of adjusting. I have 2 more to do.
    Your garden photos make me feel uplifted when I see them.
    Teddy always steals the show.
